Yvette Norwood-Tiger: Love Is

Yvette Norwood-Tiger teams together with a bopping quartet of trumpeter Michael Mackey, bassists Joshua Ewers or Phil McArthur, keyboardist Ken Burkhart and drummer Jose Roman Duque for a doen tunes that mix her material with classic jazz standards. She gives a riveting unaccompanied delivery of Duke Ellington’s “Come Sunday” that glows like a candle in the Narthex, while a due with Burkhart on her own “Time IS A Wrecking Ball” is an alluring intimate affair. With the band, she gets passionate with Mackey on the John Coltrane’s modal “Dear Lord/Psalm 40:1-3” and asserts herself alongside Ewers’ bass line on his “Equinox.” A rich scat bouncing back with Mackey ricochet’s on her “It’s Time For Love” and she strong working up a sweat on Horace Silver’s “Song For My Father” not being intimidated at all by the bebopping trumpeter. This lady has confidence in her sweet soul.
